Keep up on what's happening with the Bloodshot gang!

We're Having a Birthday Party and You're Invited!

Barely BS


In late July, Bloodshot turned 18!!  In that hazy, crazy summer of '94, we put out a little compilation to alleviate our boredom (Angry Birds hadn't been invented yet...I was like the Stone Age) and try and get into to shows for free.  It features the first widely available recordings of Bottle Rockets, Robbie Fulks, The Handsome Family, and provided Jon Langford with more opportunities to make music...

And now we're old enough to do things  like vote, buy pornography and Lotto tickets, get a Sam's Club membership,  get a home loan (and allow banks to screw us), sue somebody (like a bank), get sued, be convicted as adults, buy tobacco, buy Nicorette gum, enter the Publishers Clearinghouse Sweepstakes....ah the world is our oyster.....

To celebrate, we're throwing at Party!  5 Bands!  Beer Tastings!

Sounds like heaven to us.


While you're in the festive mood, check out our August sale highlighting artists connected to that very first album.
